Throwback Thursday: Wearing Every 90's Trend at Once

Throwback Thursday, #tbt, 1990s, 1990s fashion trends, colorblocking, crop tops, shorts over tights, socks over tights
So, here's the thing. I was super into every single 90's fashion trend. Zippered crop tops? Check. Shorts over tights? Check. Socks over tights? Check. Lots of accessories? Check. Wearing them all at the same time? Quadruple check.

As you can see from the photo above, I was pretty proud of this look. Judging from the braces (which I'm betting had alternating red and white rubber bands), I think this was around 1992 or 1993, so I was 12 or 13.

This top was a piece de resistance in my wardrobe. I wore it ALL. THE. TIME. WITH. EVERYTHING. With shorts, with skirts, with jeans, under overalls ... I couldn't get enough of it. I loved that it had a zipper down the front with a ring-shaped pull, and I loved the cropped fit.

Shorts over tights were huge back then, as was wearing big socks over the tights. And, as you can see, I always, ALWAYS wore a pin and earrings. (My 7th grade teacher actually nicknamed me "The Pin and Earring Queen.") 

This was definitely during my phase of wearing only red, black and white. I was inspired by the character Stephanie in the series Sleepover Friends, who wore those three colors exclusively -- I just thought she was so cool. (I also wanted to dress like a mix of Claudia and Stacey in The Baby-Sitters Club. But come on, who didn't?) My earrings were red and black houndstooth, and my watch had a red band. I definitely stuck to a theme.

And yes, those are oversized, high waisted, slouchy shorts. Hey, like I said, it was the 90's.

  9. Adorable! My favorite outfit from that time was neon green leggings- with slouch socks of course- and a huge white sweatshirt with a maid on the front. Her lace apron lifted up- like the one Joan Cusac wore in Sixteen Candles. Most stylish seven year old ever!
